The Plan...

So here's the plan. Every single day of 2018, I will play a different song on my ukulele, video it, and post it here.

"Why?" I hear you ask. Well at first it was just for the challenge of it, to make myself discover and play a load of songs, not just the ones I always play. Then I thought that maybe, just maybe, I could raise some money for a worthy cause too. So, over on the right, there is some information on how you can donate to SolarAid, providing solar lighting to homes in Africa, to replace the harmful kerosene lamps that so many families use.

All of the songs will be played on a vintage plastic ukulele, a Maccaferri Islander, which sold for about $5 in the 1950s. Hope it lasts the year! 

And what songs will there be? To be honest, I don't know yet, but it will be a complete mix. Some will probably be old favourites that we all know, and either love or hate, but I hope that others will be new to you. And to me too.

So, without further ado, thanks for listening...
